The network of pipes that bring clean water and remove dirty water in your home is critical to your enjoyment and health. Nowhere is this more apparent than your bathroom. The sink, toilet, bath, and shower all depend upon a functioning plumbing system. Supply line damage can quickly put a stop to this, not to mention create a water cleanup problem.
The majority of your supply lines are hidden behind walls so it can be hard to see what is going on with them. There are a couple of ways to determine if your pipes are in good shape. A sudden bathroom leak is one indication. A series of leaks over a couple of years is the second sign of trouble.

Replacing and Repairing

Supply line damage in your bathroom demands immediate attention. If the situation allows, you can get by with a quick repair that will stop the leak and replace a section of pipe or a connector. However, if the problem indicates a systemic failure, it might be better to replace all of the pipes at once. You have three excellent options for the type of replacement pipe:

  • PVC pipe
  • Copper pipe
  • Stainless steel pipe

Plastic materials are easy to work with and are generally less expensive. Metal pipes cost more but are better for longevity and often come with lifetime warranties. New pipes will greatly reduce the likelihood of a supply line leak in the near future.
